Stop it, I can hear your frustrated groans echoing through the internet.
I've been to school several times without finishing. My brothers' have actually pointed this out to me a lot lately. But I've wanted to attend cosmetology school since I was sixteen years old yet life always seemed to get in the way - or my own self-doubts did me in before I even tried. I'm not stylish enough, I don't have enough money, I won't be able to maintain a full time job while going to school- I don't know how to use a blow dryer! All of these things helped me talk myself out of cosmetology school many, many times.
Now, living with my parents as I do, I don't have the stresses I had in Philadelphia. I work part time, I don't have the same expenses, I don't need to worry about taking care of the house/cooking for two people anymore. I can just focus on my studies and I think that, while my ultimate dream is to be a boutique owner, there's no reason that boutique can't have a salon chair in the back. It's a career path that involves creativity, style and art as well as having a flexible schedule that would allow me to continue to work on my etsy shop or write my books. All in all, I really hate that I didn't do this to begin with.
I toured a local school in a beautiful city nearby and I fell in love with the architecture and the structure of the classes. They don't even require a certain uniform- just everything you wear with the exception of your jewelry and shoes has got to be black!
Well, I do like a challenge.
One of the hardest parts of this is that I know I don't dress in a conventionally fashionable way, and this is a line of work in which your appearance will reflect on people's ability to trust you with their hair. (If that sentence makes sense- I'm writing this with a supreme head cold). At the same time, when all in black, I think my Calliope and Flying Trapeze dresses will look adorable and I'll be comfortable and able to move my arms in them. I'm so inspired by this monochromatic idea that I can't wait to get working on my new wardrobe!

I'm also digging the all-black Chucks look as well as purple Chucks for a pop of color. I don't know if they're alright to wear to school, but still, a girl can dream, right?
